The process of grading fish is explained to attendants at last year’s Wild Spring Festival.

GFT will be holding an event at Torhouse Trout Farm on Friday 11th April as part of the Wild Spring Festival. We will have a range of fish to view in the tanks at the Gibb hatchery and lot’s of information to hand for people who may wish to volunteer with us. Once we have spent time in the hatchery, Mark Davies will give a tour of Torhouse Trout Farm where you will learn the techniques involved in farming rainbow trout.
The tour takes place on Friday 11th April between 11.00 and 12.30. To book a place on the tour, please ring the GFT on 01671 40 3011 giving your name and the number of people attending. Take the Wigtown to Kirkcowan road (B733) and you will find Torhouse Trout Farm just a few miles from the Wigtown side. The ‘Fish Up Close’ event will be sign posted from this junction. If you are coming from Newton Stewart (A714), take the B7005 and at the football grounds below Wigtown, take a right onto the B733 where you will see signs for the event.
